truth and confession

Written by rabbi russ resnik

art-lampTell the people of Isra’el, ‘When a man or woman commits any kind of sin against another person and thus breaks faith with ADONAI he incurs guilt. He must confess the sin which he has committed . . . (Numbers 5:6–7) 

When truth encounters the data of our lives, it gives rise to confession.

hocus pocus or truth?

Written by rebbetzin malkah

art-trickThe Torah and the teachings of the rabbis give us all the guidance we need, but to follow the path that lies before us still calls for a discerning heart. This is the ultimate instrument for recognizing what is true and for guiding our speech and actions. It’s the heart that calls you to go looking for guidance from tradition when that’s available. And it is the wise heart that will show the way in the myriad situations for which there are no black-and-white answers. -- Alan Morinis, Everyday Holiness, pg. 171

Pray for us, for we are sure that we have a clear conscience, desiring to act honorably in all things. --Hebrews 13:18

reaching the unreachable

Written by rabbi michael schiffman

art-inconvienttruthTruth is one of those intangible concepts that are difficult to define. When Yeshua said he bore witness of the truth, Pilate asked him, “What is truth?” It’s a good question. We live in a world where truth is so subjective, that the idea of it becomes almost meaningless.

Most of us hold to some basic truths we were raised with. Family roles are a good example of this. In the classic musical, “Fiddler on the Roof,” the song “Tradition” spelled out marital roles more specifically. “Who, day and night, must scramble for a living, feed a wife and children, say his daily prayers? And who has the right, as master of the house, to have the final word at home? The Papa, the Papa! “
